Hello Wade, good to see you here on the Forum. You are with many others who
have heard their wives say, "Get a Hobby. . .please."

After watching hundreds of tugboats and anchor handling support ships in your work,
for years, out there on the offshore Texas waters. . .at last, now you can own
one of the same. Indeed, I experience a desire to have my own semi-submersible
rig to tow about the pond which is considered odd by my neighbors but quit normal
around the Forum here. You are retired and yet. . .are you?

Great to meet you Wade and Welcome Aboard,
Michael in Anacortes, WA
Yet another case of why men and women go down to the sea in ships. . .A pleasure to be here and smell the salt air. Thank you Tugboat Forum. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington www.twotugboats.com

Thank You,, One would think I would model a crew boat or 210 work boat, or cargo supply boat. sometimes we would work near the intercoastal water way, I would go up in the 140' derrick and watch the tow boats pushing barges .that was cool how they would make a bend in the waterway , so I don't know much about how to build one ,, But I will learn, with the help of guys like yourself,,, Thanks
